Lower Allen to review TND plan in February
Tuesday's snow delayed review of a plan for a large mixed-use development in Cumberland County.
The Lower Allen Township Planning Commission is now set to look at Arcona, a traditional neighborhood development slated for 248 acres along Lisburn, Rossmoyne and Arcona roads, at its Feb. 4 meeting, according to township officials.
A plan was submitted by Lancaster-based Charter Homes & Neighborhoods. Charter is proposing 1,664 residential units and 234,500 square feet of mixed-use and commercial space, with a core neighborhood of 89 acres.
The Arcona master plan also sets aside 97 acres of open space.
The first neighborhood in the development — Highpoint — would be built on 44 acres at Lisburn and Arcona roads. The plan is 164 residential units and 19,170 square feet of mixed-use space.
Charter is planning to start with 30 acres of development in Highpoint. That would include 55 single-family detached and 29 single-family attached homes, as well as 17 mixed-use residential units and 13,410 square feet of commercial and 5,040 square feet of office space.
The Lancaster County company is responsible for the mixed-use Walden development in Silver Spring Township.
